My name is Christian GIlbert. I'm a french canadian so... "sorry for my french". I'm an automation engineer.
In this formation I'm looking to get used to the interface and my goal is to be able to inport data from a MySQL DB to Pi on a predetermined schedule.
Can you tell us how much time does the videos take altogether?
Good to meet you! You will install and configure a PI OPC Interface during the course, but you'll certainly be able to accomplish this with the knowledge you'll learn! The particular product that you would use to import data from a SQL database into PI is the PI RDBMS Interface.
Regarding your other question, the videos should take you the first week to complete. However, if you complete them faster than that and are comfortable beginning the exercises, feel free to start them.
My name is Paul McCutchan. I currently work for VC Summer Nuclear Power Station (SCE&G) just outside of Columbia, SC. I am the supervisor of a small Digital Engineering group. I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of SC. In 2012 my group installed a small PI System (15,000 tags). Since the system was installed a lot of turnover has happened and all of the PI expertise is gone. I did manage a PI System with International Paper 9+ years ago but I am very rusty. Hope to learn a lot.
Hello my name is Carlos Escudero from Argentina (sorry for my spanglish), I´m a software engineer.
I'm working managing projects, serveral of these are related to PI-Osisoft, so I´d like to learn how to configure a basic system in order to plan better my projects.
I´m working in an Oil&Gas Company, and last year we´ve implemented a PI System pilot.
I´m glad to participate in this activity.
I am Eric Brown. I am a Controls Engineer with Corning, although my experience has been much broader (https://www.linkedin.com/in/eric-brown-96277a18/ ).
I am taking the class as an introduction into the Pi World. I am not in the IT side of things, but need to develop some expertise in the whole system - from the PLCs to the client interfaces.
I am Walter Yanko and I'm a chemical engineer. In this course I look forward to get used to the system and implement it in other projects.
My name is Tremayne Locklear and I am a Process Automation Engineer at American Zinc Recycle in Mooresboro, NC. I look forward to learning the OSIPI and how implement it in all of our plants.
My name is Stephen Thefs. I’m in the power generation sector in Australia. I work in IT and have managed our small PI system since it was installed 17 years ago.
What do I hope to get out of the course: 1) Better understanding of OSISoft recommended best practices for managing a PI system, 2) Improve our PI system security at both the interface and tag level (and possibly implement the security changes for the final project)
My name is Teresa Barbosa and I'm a Chemical Engineer, gradueted at Universidade Federal de Campina Grande, Brazil. Now I'm working at my master dissertation, that's the reason I'm here in this course. By the way, sorry for my bad English.
I am Mike Fife, an engineer with a plan to install a Pi Server, and create the tools in Pi to monitor conveyance systems currently in use. The drive is to::
Productivity (Counts, Speeds, Time)
Stops, (jams, operator stops, lack of product)
Mean Duration of Stops
Intended as a starting point for a local facility - further growing into corporate wide support.
My name is Steven Phythian and I am a Systems Engineer for Optimate Pty Ltd in Queensland, Australia.
Optimate provides automation and data management solutions to businesses across a range of sectors and I am hoping this course will improve my PI knowledge to help add value to myself and the business.
My experience is mostly in the OT space with PLCs, SCADA and HMIs being a focus.
